This tutorial is going to take you to further updateing your shairport sync.
To enable Shairport-Sync with some more advanced features, we need to install Shairport-Sync after version 2.4.0. If you know how to build package, you can visit Shairport-Sync](https://github.com/mikebrady/shairport-sync) for the newest version, else, there is an already made package from a contributor on github (version 2.6.0).
You can check your Shairport-Sync version by running the following command:
$ shairport-sync -V
probonopd (github) package:
$ wget https://github.com/probonopd/shairport-sync-for-openwrt/releases/download/20160119/shairport-sync-openssl_2.6-1_ar71xx.ipk $ opkg install shairport-sync-openssl_2.6-1_ar71xx.ipk $ reboot
$ shairport-sync start up
If you would like to get some more detailed information, you can enable verbose mode by typing
-vvv upon how detailed information you need.
For Shairport-Sync 2.6, the configuration file is quite different from version 2.1.15. If you would like to custom it, you can find the configuration file by typing the following command:
$ vi /etc/shairport-sync.conf
Now, you can custom your Airplay by changing the conent:
(!! Caution: After testing, it seems Android devices are not capable for password and the following features, only IOS devices could perfectly run it. )
You can easily find there is a password option in the configuration file, if you would like to protect your device, just uncomment it and set it to whatever you like!
I am going to show you some of the advanced features of Shairport-Sync, but the first thing you need to do is to enable the metadata. To enable metadata, you just simply need to change the following:
Now, it is time to display something advanced.
